Saints rugby legend, Ben Cohen, has been left close to the bottom of the table following his first performance on Strictly Come Dancing.
The 34-year-old, who played more than 150 times for his hometown club, Northampton Saints, and 57 times for England, scored just 19 out of a possible 40 points for his first dance on the BBC1 show on Saturday.
Speaking before the dance, he compared himself to an articulated lorry and after his performance, notoriously critical judge Craig Revel Horwood said Cohen reminded him of a breeze block.
But commenting on Twitter after the show, Cohen was philosophical about his performance,
Thanking viewers who had complemented him on his cha-cha dance, he said: “Thank you for all your lovely comments. I really enjoyed it.”
Speaking before his dance, he added: “It’s great to be in a show like this because it means my children can watch me learn to dance.
“They love dancing and go to dancing lessons and it would be great for me to be able to join them.”
The ex-Kingsthorpe Upper School student is performing alongside fashion designer Julien Macdonald, singer Sophie Ellis-Bextor, Coronation Street’s Natalie Gumede, Hairy Biker Dave Myers, businesswoman Deborah Meaden, actor Mark Benton, James Bond actress Fiona Fullerton, Ashley Taylor Dawson from Hollyoaks, Patrick Robinson from Casualty, model Abbey Clancy, BBC breakfast presenter Susanna Reid, Countdown star Rachel Riley, golfer Tony Jacklin and television personality Vanessa Feltz.
